Video Subbing: Moya Moya Summer (2012.07.15) in Okayama




Hey everyone,

Yes, it's time for another video sub.
Due to the good response I got back from the Moya Moya Summers episode I did a couple of months back, I've decided to do another one.

I was a bit surprised about how many people liked it, and was very pleased since, at the moment it's one of my favourite shows. It's always a lot easier to sub shows that make you laugh while you're doing it.

This episode they travel to Okayama prefecture, or more specifically, to Kurashiki and Kojima in Okayama prefecture. The city of Kurashiki is famous of it's olden styled buildings, and in particular its "kura" or storehouses.



Anyway, they talk a bit more about that stuff in the video, so just watch that.

TRANSLATION NOTES

BAKUFU
Is the government of a feudal military dictator. This dictator was called a Shogun and so, for some reason bakufu has been Englishised as Shogunate. The leaders of the Edo bakufu were the Tokugawa Clan, with the founder being the famous Tokugawa Ieyasu. This bakufu lasted 200 years, with 15 different rulers before ending in 1866, when Japan allowed foreigners into the country and began to modernise.

KINASHI NORITAKE
Is one half of the veteran comedy duo Tunnels, along with Ishibashi Takaaki. Their popularity exploded '80s and they became superstars in Japan. Although they keep a lower profile these days, hosting less shows etc, they still command a great deal of respect and popularity in the industry. By the way, you may recognise the partner, Ishibashi Takaaki from the show Utaban, which he hosted alongside SMAP's Nakai.



FOLK TOYS
They mentioned a couple of toys in the video. One was a tako kite. The idea is the same as any other kite, but traditionally it was designed to be shaped like a buddhist or some kabuki type guy.
A Taketombo was also shown in the video so I won't really explain, aside from that the name means "Bamboo (Take) Dragonfly (Tombo)".

I'M NOT A FAN, I'M A BEEEEP!
I'm not entirely sure what the old hanshin fan said, but my guess is "I'm a Torakichi!".
This is a nickname given to extremely passionate fans of the Hanshin Tigers baseball team.
Torakichi is a combination of the words "Tora" meaning tiger, and "kichigai" meaning crazy/ madman, so loosely, it's something like a Tigers Freak. Kichigai is a slightly offensive word, and so that's probably why it was beeped out. Even so, many Hanshin fans are happy to call themselves that. No one really knows why.

MURAKAMI FROM MORISANCHU
Summers were reminded of Murakami when they met the lady selling "H....ts". Morisanchu are a popular, all female comedy trio. Murakami is possibly the least noticeable of all, and not as many appearances on TV. 
Anyway, here she is.






ODAIBA
This is a place in Tokyo that promises to be interesting, but actually, is quite boring.
I know, I've been there and made the mistake. Well it does have a Toyota museum or something showcasing their technology, but it's really quite outdated. The only reason to go there is if you're going to Disney Land, which is presumably good (I've never been there). Well maybe it is worth a visit just to look around, but don't get your hopes up, basically.

Oh  but it has the Fuji TV station there so you can go there and by merchandise of some popular tv shows, if that interests you.

There's also a random miniature version of the Statue of Liberty there for some reason.

Odaiba is an artificial island originally built for military purposes but is now a residential and commercial area featuring stuff like I mentioned. The easiest way to access it is by car via the Rainbow Bridge, or by rail on the Yurikamome, which travels on the underside of the bridge.

  9. Thank you very much for subbing!!
    I find it weird to see an amusement park with so few people around. In my country (belgium) they are always very crowded.

    1. They have a lot of random little amusement parks there.
      Many of them don't have many customers, probably because a lot of the are old.

      Or, they filmed during a week day, and everyone was at school or work.

    Thank you so much for subbing it! I also really like the style of the box around the subtitles... Maybe someday you can teach us how to do that. :P

  15. Thanks again for your great work =)

    Funnily enough I went to Washuzan Highland a couple of years ago, the dancers didn't wear the sexy outfits though, just tracksuit pants and T's... oh and that 'Brazil Suki?' guy wasn't there either =( Maybe I'll see him next time!

    1. Woooah...seriously? lol

      Why were you around there?
      Too bad you didn't see those crazy Brazilian people.

      Oh, and was everyone wearing those chupy and chury ears?

      Delete
    2. I was staying with a friend's family in Shikoku at the time and we wanted to go bungee jumping. Washuzan was the only place they knew of so we caught the train over.

      I remember the ferris wheel was twice as scary as the bungee jump though, the whole thing felt like it was going to fall apart!

      I don't remember anyone wearing the ears but I do remember the main stage. When we went there was a big school excursion to the place and the Brazilian girls were kind of forcing some of the high-school girls and female teachers to take Samba lessons lol

  20. That was surprisingly refreshing. It's nice to watch some laid back shows once in a while instead of the usual intense japanese comedy. They still manage to make it really funny and interesting. I see why you enjoy this show. Thanks for subbing, enjoyed every minute of it.
